'among the flowers, from a bowl of wine : i drink alone beneath the moonlight : i raise my cup to the moon, who blends its light with my shadow and we are three friends : the moon does not know how to drink her share : my shadow follows me in vain : i stay with them to enjoy springtime while it lasts : i beckon the moon to linger with my song : my shadow leaves as I dance along : sober, we three remain happy : drunken, we part and each goes his own way : our friendship will outshine all earthly love : next time we will meet beyond the stars' : li bai, drinking alone under the moon
